5.0 out of 5 stars New, but familiar November 16, 2005
Format:DVD
Animusic 2, like its predecessor "Animusic", contains computer rendered animations that are set to music - in fact, the essence of the animations is that they are driven by the music, each musical note being connected with some action in the animation. While this fact may be of more interest to people concerned with the "how" rather than simply the experience provided by the final product, I think that understanding the process that goes into Animusic is part of the fun. If Rube Goldberg conducted an orchestra in cyberspace, it might look like some of the animations in Animusic 2.

I enjoyed the first Animusic tremendously, and this DVD presents more of the same. While there are a few aspects in which Animusic 2 differs from its predecessor, the similarities outweigh the differences and the overall experience is remarkably similar.

This album is similar musically to the original. It features a range of styles, and relies mostly upon struck or plucked strings and melodic percussion (such as xylophones / marimbas) to carry most of the tunes. Drums and synthesizers also feature heavily.

The music is interesting enough when played with the animation, but does not stand alone simply as music as well as the first album did. Still, the tunes are catchy and enjoyable, and you will find yourself tapping your toes and bouncing your head as you watch / listen.

The animation is detail intensive and exceptionally well rendered. The instrument models and sets are clever and interesting to watch. On the whole, even if the experience is essentially another iteration of the original Animusic concept, this is not at all a bad thing.

There are some differences, and they are generally for the better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Computer Graphics Wet Dream November 22, 2005
Format:DVD
I was a big fan of the original Animusic, and the even earlier "Pipe Dream" animation, so it was with great anticipation that I popped in Animusic 2 to my DVD player. Simply put Animusic 2 doesn't disapoint, it's fabulous! There are 8 animations, one of which is a sequel to Pipe Dream, imaginatively called Pipe Dream 2 ;-) The graphics are all top notch and the music is terrific. On occasion the music seems to drag on but the graphics picks up the slack. The DVD should win an award for DVD mastering (if there is such a thing). Both wide screen 16:9 and standard screen 4:3 versions are on the disk. I must confess I haven't bothered to watch the 4:3 animations since I was busy salivating over the wide screen version.

The extras included for each animation are also terrific. Some show different musical mixes, and others let you control different viewpoints via the Angle capability of DVD players. The director's commentary is also quite fun and Lytle sounds like he sitting there with you discussing the show.

Note to Pixar: use this stuff for backgrounds in a movie

5.0 out of 5 stars Visual Rock! October 15, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
They're ALIVE! The instruments come to life on your TV as they play to some great music.

An amazing idea! Great music set to awesome graphics. Think: computer geek meets music freak - they bash ideas around, get serious about the ideas, compose some great music and set AWESOME computer animation to the music.

The music alone plays on our TV throughout the afternoon when my 9 year old has his way. He could watch this DVD and listen to the music all day long.

The tracks are varied in their music style, from stadium rock, to techno pop, to chamber music, and all of the music is tasteful, well written.

The graphics are perfect.

I can't wait for Animusic III!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Step Forward...Yet Backwards... December 28, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw the preview for `Animusic 2' and was very eager to get my hands on this new 8 track DVD. After watching it I would have to say that this DVD was just a bit over hyped. `Animusic 2' is not a bad watch at all. I enjoyed watching it, but I think that is the secret word here. This DVD was more visual than musical. The original's music was what really made the overall DVD great. I loved the new sequences from a visual standpoint. It was a huge step forward from the original. The highpoints were the return of the stickman with his new posse as well as the starship grooving robots and who can forget the amazing finale in `Heavy Light'. The visuals were great but the music was just not the perfect match and that was a huge step back. If there will be an `Animusic 3', which there are very few rumors about, I feel Wayne Lyttle needs to remember that its not `Animusic' with out the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars instruments come to life! July 7, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
When I first saw animusic, I was dazzled by the animation, I loved the music, and it's really fun to watch. My brother and I were going insane because we had to wait so long for this DVD to come out. Now that it's here, I'll rate each of the animations...

1.Starship Groove: Has a good beat to it. It's kind of a mix of Jazz and techno. 9/10

2.pogo sticks: My dad's favorite and one of my favorites. It's just a song with two diffrent types of basses and drums. It's fast pace, but when they go under tunnels it lows down 10/10

3.Resonat chamber: The backround looks like it's in a tall tower. The music is simply beutiful, but theres nothing really special about this song 8/10

4.Cathedral Pictures: This animation has a mix of 3 classic songs. It's a really good song. 9/10

5.Pipe dream 2: the sequal to the first pipe dream. The only thing thats diffrent is the music it plays. It's still cool 8/10

6.Fiber Bndles: another one of my favorites. It looks like it takes place in a UFO. It's a very intresting techno song 10/10

7.Gyro Drums: the new generation of drum machine. Little robots float around the drum set and play the song. 8/10

8.Heavy light: the last animation on the DVD. It's my all time favorite on the DVD. It's pure lasers that takes place on a planet or a Egyption area. 10/10
